How to engage remote employees?

Ah, working from home. For some employees, it's a comfort and time-saver: no more traffic jams or organizational stress. For others, it can mean loneliness and lack of interactions. At Alocube Pro, we understand the importance of fostering a strong company culture and maintaining employee morale, even from a distance. Our customizable Alo Spinning Cube provides an innovative solution to engage and connect with your remote workforce, ensuring every employee feels part of the team.

Why Employee Engagement Matters

Engaged employees are more productive, motivated, and loyal. However, remote work can lead to feelings of isolation and disconnect. It's essential to implement strategies that keep employees connected and valued.

The Challenge of Remote Engagement

Remote employees often face isolation and a lack of connection with their colleagues and company culture. Without the daily in-person interactions, it can be challenging to keep everyone aligned and motivated. Traditional engagement strategies may fall short, making it crucial for managers and companies to find creative and meaningful ways to bridge the gap. Implementing various activities can help keep remote teams engaged and motivated.

Introducing the Spinning Cube Messenger: A Touch of Home in the Workplace

The Alo Spinning Cube is more than just a gift—it's an experience. By sending a personalized Alo Spinning Cube to your remote employees, you show that you value their contribution and care about their well-being. Here’s how it can enhance your remote engagement strategy:

Efficient Communication Tools

Effective communication is key to successful teleworking. Here's how our tools help us stay connected and enhance productivity:

  • Slack: Slack can be the main communication tool for daily discussions, serious topics, and fun channels like music, DIY, and memes.
  • Notion: Notion is the go-to for documenting processes, making information accessible and ensuring smooth onboarding.
  • Google Meet: For video meetings, making face-to-face communication easy.
  • Spinning Cube Messenger: for a tangible fun!

Maintaining Social Interaction

Ensure the remote interactions aren't solely work-related. Have virtual coffee breaks, holiday celebrations, and weekly Pictionary games to relax and bond.

Every week, start with good news before introducing our week's sprint, sharing positive updates from personal achievements to quirky anecdotes.

Trust and Caring

Trust and caring are essential, both at work and in life. At Alocube Pro, we trust each team member to do their best and handle their responsibilities, granting autonomy and freedom in their roles. Caring for each other, we embrace the realities of home life during teleworking—be it a spouse saying hello or a child entering the room. We prioritize well-being and maintain a supportive atmosphere, recognizing that all employees are doing their best in these challenging times to contribute to the business.

Connection to Mission and Purpose

One critical aspect often overlooked in remote settings is the employee's connection to the organization's mission and purpose. During remote engagements, it's essential to continuously communicate the company's vision, goals, and how each employee's role contributes to the larger picture. Regular updates and transparent communication can help in bridging this gap and keeping employees aligned with the company's objectives, thus enhancing overall employee engagement and business outcomes.

Quarterly Surveys for Feedback

To understand and improve employee engagement, consider conducting quarterly surveys. These surveys can measure various elements including clarity of expectations, opportunities for development, opinions, and the feeling of connection to the mission. Regularly gathering this feedback enables companies to make data-driven decisions to enhance remote work experiences. Engaging employees in this way ensures they feel heard and valued, positively impacting their overall work satisfaction and performance.

One-on-One Meaningful Conversations

A strategy that has been proven effective is having one-on-one meaningful conversations between managers and employees. These discussions can focus on recognition, collaboration, goals, and employee strengths, thereby preventing feelings of disconnection and fostering a stronger bond with the organization. Managers need to hold at least one such conversation per week to maintain high-performance relationships and effectively manage their teams.
